Because he's long been stereotyped by the rousing neo-romantic adventure scores for the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park franchises, it's easy to forget that composer John Williams is hardly idiomatically challenged. When Steven Spielberg gratifyingly used the clout of his enormous commercial success to produce and direct this brave Holocaust drama, his longtime musical collaborator used the opportunity to display both the depth and maturity of his musical gifts and training, producing a score with sad, evocative melodies frequently carried by the violin of the great Itzhak Perlman. Rich with ethnic nuance and showcasing the composer's masterful orchestral/choral subtlety, Williams's emotionally compelling score for Schindler's List also won the Academy Award for Best Dramatic Score. --Jerry McCulley

From the response that one can observe to the score from Schindler's List, it is like no one took John Williams' work seriously prior to its release. He had been renowned for his bombast music and his loud marches, but his subtler works might have been too easily forgotten. However, there seems to be a turnaround in the public conception of Williams after Schindler's List. To many people, he became a composer capable of the deep emotion inherent in more somber films. To long time fans, this may have always been apparent, but for those who could not recognize his skill, Schindler's List divulged it completely and indubitably.
Schindler's List, even when it is depicting the greatest evil and the most visually horrifying images, never collapses and never overpowers. Its greatest gift is its ability to outline and highlight, not to overshadow and reconstruct. The multiple themes are all extraordinary and powerful, recurring where necessary, and coming to a crescendo as appropriate. Frequently intermingled are appropriate and stirring excerpts from Hebrew hymns that humanize and reconnect the images on screen with the validity of the past. Combined within are two sides of a film score that work together to create a magical whole. The dominant passages are the string pieces, led by Ithzak Pearlman, and colasceing the traditional images of the film with music that isn't wholly inappropriate from the era depicted. Alternately, there are delightful mechanical cues that reference Hebrew music and lighten the mood as necessary. Best depicted in the track "Schindler's Workforce"--perhaps the best an most delightful of the tracks, outside of the suites--maintains a constant beat that circles and epitomizes the interaction of the Jews and their forced occupation.

It is impossible to describe in mere words how beautiful the violin solos on this soundtrack are. John Williams has composed two haunting themes ("Theme from Schindler's List", tracks 1 and 14, and "Remembrances", tracks 4 and 14), and Itzhak Perlman infuses his playing with so much emotion that just listening to his violin makes you want to cry.
In addition to the violin solos and the instrumental underscoring, the album also includes several choral pieces, with a full harmonic sound that swells to fill the room. Williams' music, reminiscent of traditional Jewish melodies, perfectly conveys the tensions and emotions of this heart-breaking movie. "Schindler's List" is a perfect example to demonstrate the range of John Williams' talent; not only has he given us such memorable themes as Indiana Jones, E.T., and of course Star Wars, but he is also capable of reaching deep into his soul and producing such heart-wrenching music as this.

I myself am a violinist. I remembered in eighth grade, my school orchestra chose Schindler's List as one of our pieces for a big performance. When I read and played the notes on my violin, I was shocked at how magnificent this piece was. It was so touching that I nearly cried in front of the entire orchestra!
When I went home and told my parents about this, my mother gave me our Schindler's List Soundtrack (I never knew we had one) and I listened to it. It was marvelous. It was so incredibly beautiful but so depressing, depressing to the point where the melancholy just melts your heart. When I heard the famous Itzhak Perlman's violin solos, I wish so badly that I am just as skilled and talented as he is (Unfortunately, I'm not. I've only been promoted to 1st violin just recently).
I loved all the songs in there, but when I heard Remembrances with Itzhak Perlman (track 13), I couldn't help it. I had to cry. And I actually thought that it was not just any sad feeling, but it really feels like as though I'm trying to remember something very personal that I had forgotten for a long time.
Do yourself a favor and at least listen to this track.

Music, where would we be without it? Honestly, I do not know. I do know that music, for me, succeeds in communicating what words often times fail to express. Music often picks up where words fail, or music at least deepens the meaning of words already used. But can words deepen the meaning of music? Words, I think, can at least illuminate the meaning of music; whether they can deepen the meaning of music, I don't know. I will simply try to illuminate.

Others have used so many appropriate and excellent words to describe the effect, or meaning, of the Schindler score. The theme song will immediately intoxicate you with its simplicity and slow repetitiveness. Many of the other songs are alike, specifically "Remembrances."

I cried when, in the movie, Schindler realizes he could have saved more lives. I released many tears when he looks at his gold ring and mutters something about it being worth enough to buy one more life. Nearly every one of these songs has the power to draw such tears. You must understand that playing this music will tug, nay wrench, your inner cords of tenderness and sorrow.

Above all, this music softened my heart and awoke my mind to the brutality and inhumanity suffered by the Jews. This music can refresh an affection for all the lives lost, especially when time itself inevitably makes our hearts cold to those atrocities that really happened.
